Friends Make Venmo Better

· by Venmo

Include More Friends in Your Payments Just by @Mentioning Them We’ve seen a lot of people publishing social payments through the Venmo iPhone and Android apps to tell their friends when they are doing fun things like going to restaurants, playing team sports, or going on ski trips. Sometimes, in addition to publishing the payment to all of your Venmo friends, it’s nice to more directly include some friends. We’ve seen some users CC-ing friends just like they would @mention them on Twitter or tag them in a Facebook post. To make sure none of your friends miss a payment that you tag them in, we’ll notify anyone whose Venmo username is included with an @metion in your payment note. So now you can pay Dave for lunch and thank Ted for a good recommendation with a just one Venmo!
